The mother of Princess Beatrice's stepson has shared a rare insight into her family life.

Dara Huang, who dated Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi between 2015 and 2018, took to Instagram to share rare pictures of their eight-year-old son Wolfie.

Wolfie, whose full name is Christopher Mapelli Mozzi, recently celebrated his eighth birthday.

Following the celebrations, Huang took to Instagram to share photographs and videos of Wolfie's special talent.

She captioned the post: "Some of my favourite moments with my little artist.

"I love rediscovering the world every year through your eyes. Happy bday Wolfie."

The eight-year-old was seen drawing on a wall being held up by his mother in one snap.

In another picture, Wolfie was seen painting a canvas with a paintbrush the size of his hand.

Wolfie likely takes after both parents with his creative abilities. His mother Huang is an American architect who founded the design firm Design Haus Liberty.

Meanwhile, his father Edoardo, who is also Princess Beatrice's husband, is the founder and chief executive of the property development and interior design company, Banda Property.

Last week, Huang celebrated her son's eighth birthday on social media, writing: "Happy birthday Wolfie. Nothing has brought me more joy in my life than being your mommy.

"Another sweet year watching you grow."

The post featured three photographs of Wolfie alongside Huang.

The American architect recently admitted she is glad Wolfie has "two sets of parents trying to help him" navigate his childhood.

Huang said: "Wolfie has had two sets of parents trying to help him on both sides, and I just think, 'The more, the merrier'.

"I feel lucky to have such positive people around him, who really embrace him – because it didn’t have to be so easy."

She continued to tell Harper's Bazaar: "It's all about your point of view.

"I don't understand people who are divorced and then hold their children as collateral; that doesn’t make any sense.

"It's about creating a happy home and lifestyle."
